First Flight Cover – 1927
This is a cool piece of Airmail History. It is a stamped envelope from the September 1st “First Flight Under Contract” Chicago – New York. This was from the Cleveland to New York leg. It was stamped in Cleveland at 12:30 AM and arrived and stamped in New York a mere 16 hours later in New York.
Rare Native American Indian Stirrup
This is a very old and rare item that is in excellent condition. It was ingeniously made of from one piece of hand carved wood that was notched and then bent into position. The wood was then tied with what I believe is sinew. Then it was covered with animal hide, possibly buffalo, that was stretched and tied around the entire stirrup. This piece shows the high skill level and beautiful craftsmanship of it’s maker. It was purchased at a relic show in central Ohio in the late 60’s.
Native American Beadwork
This is a very nice example of vintage Native American artwork. It was made in the late 1800’s or early 1900’s. It was purchased at a museum auction in the 1960’s. It is in very good condition with no missing beads. There is a bit of fraying at one end of the cloth. I am sure it took very many hours for the artist to make this.
Rare Early 17th Century European Fighting Axe
This was found in a field along the Wabash River between a French trading post and the Tippecanoe battlefield. That doesn’t mean that it had anything to do with either. I’m just sayin’. Anyway this is a very cool artifact. It is definitely very old. I now have new information from an expert. Apparently it is a battle-axe of a type originally from Eastern Europe (Hungarian or Polish) ca 1600.
Native American Indian Saddle Blanket
This is a very colorful piece of Native American artwork. It is in great shape for its age. It has a couple old stains on one side that I have not tried to remove. There are no holes or moth damage. It is definitely Native American and not Mexican.
